"There should be an 'Abstract of Principles', or careful statement of theological belief, which every professor in such an institution must sign when inaugurated, so as to guard against the rise of erroneous and injurious instruction in such a seat of sacred learning."

James P. Boyce
from "Three Changes in
Theological Institutions"
- summarized by John Broadus, 1856



Resolution of Continuing Cooperative Partnership with Texas Baptist Churches

We, the presidents of the entities of the Southern Baptist Convention, celebrate our partnership with the Baptist churches of Texas, and we affirm our eagerness to work with all Texas Baptists through our historic partnership.

We express appreciation to the associational directors of missions who met with us today, and ask them to join this affirmation of partnership in the gospel and our support of the Cooperative Program in its historic and time-honored form.

We invite the leadership of the Baptist General Convention of Texas to join us in this affirmation and to stand together in this partnership.

[This resolution was hand written in the last few minutes of the meeting of entity presidents and Texas DOMs at SWBTS on 9-21-2000 by Dr. Al Mohler, and approved by unanimous voice vote of the presidents immediately after being read aloud by Dr. Morris Chapman. The DOMs took no official action in response to the resolution, and were merely asked to do whatever God might lead them to do in future days with respect to embracing it.]
